This is the third in the series of children's books illustrated by Constanze von Kitzing.  Along with Prayers for Children and Blessed Is the Spot, it helps complete a young child's Baha'i library of hardbound books.  While the first two were of prayers, this one offers very brief quotations on a wide range of topics, like God, The Soul, Prayer, Friendship, Peace, Love and Service.  I think this may be my favorite of the series - and not just because it is a great introduction for A Pocketful of Pearls, which is designed for older children.  I like the use of The Hidden Words, and the focus on our positive capacity to reflect the qualities of God.  This will help give children a positive self-image based on their spiritual reality.

Here's what the publisher has to say:

Pearls of Wisdom is a beautifully illustrated book of passages from the Baha'i writings, presented in a manner that will appeal to children of all ages. Arranged around themes such as God, the soul, prayer, friendship, and love, all passages are accompanied by vibrant full-page color illustrations by award-winning illustrator Constanze von Kitzing.

This work strikes the perfect balance between playful and reverent.Pearls of Wisdomis an ideal book for the whole family to enjoy together, and it is hoped that it will lead to rewarding discussions about important spiritual topics in the home.
